Justine came across Stoodleigh Court almost by mistake – she searched for wedding venues in Somerset, and even though it was in Devon, she couldn’t ignore the beautiful country house. Kire agreed there was something special about it, so they went to view it. It was love at first sight – the couple fell for the grand venue and loved that although it looked so decadent, it still had an intimate feel to it.
The staff really impressed Justine and Kire, particularly Leah, who proved to be a godsend as the couple planned their wedding. They also loved the delicious menu, and picked out the ‘Rustic Feast’ for their guests, which included local cheeses, chutneys and pates as a starter, followed by medallions of pork with apples, raisins and cider, honey glazed chicken with roasted tomatoes or salmon on a bed of asparagus. There was also a vegetarian option of lentil and bean casserole, which the vegetarian bride couldn’t fault!
